Doctor Who and Green Lantern



The artwork of Dave Gibbons exploded in popularity when Watchmen hit the stands, but the first time he made an impression with me was his work on Green Lantern.  His depictions of Hal Jordan, John Stewart and the extended cast of the title looked great to me, his clean lines gave everything a modern feel.  I was a big fan of his back up tales as well, featuring alien GL's in solo adventures.

These two first met in STF #1911...

Apparently, one of the Sontarans has been hanging out with Goldface. Whose look, by the way, always struck me as ironic.*


*His armor made him look like one of the Cybermen...who are allergic to gold!

"The S.S.S.S? I say, isn't that carrying alliteration a little too far?"

Maybe, next time, you could team GL and Spidey against one of those bounty-hunting rhinos after they mistake a certain Russian mobster-who-used-to-pose-as-Irish-American for one of their own.

What if I am a robot like the demon with the glass hand in *THE OUTER LIMITS*? And Is there nothing wrong with your television set?

My TV is actually an Over Band Individuated Tele-tracer. So, don't do anything I wouldn't do! ;-)

How about, for a sequel, Dr. Fate and Doctor Who vs. Mr. Who?

@Anonymous: it would be-"who've" you to send that inquiry to Ross, directly.
